It Takes Patience

Chapter 13: Unexpected

*Reagan’s POV*
I woke up today with a clear head and a new found focus on what I was here to do. After I told Channel and Laurie what had happened between Harry and I and how annoyed I was with the situation, they told me that I had to put it behind me and they were right. I busted my ass to be here in London studying under Dr. Baker. Harry is just a project and though he’s handsome, he’s not worth me getting kicked out of my internship.

I hopped in the shower, washed my hair, and put on my black toms, maroon scrub top, and my black pants because today even though I was still shadowing H., he had a session with Baker meaning we would be back in the office. I decided to wear my hair half up and half down and put in my contacts. I’m getting tired of Harry calling me glasses. When I had finished getting dressed it was almost half passed seven so I headed downstairs to wait for the van to take me to the hospital.

*Harry’s POV*
My alarm went off at 7:30 today and it pissed me off! Why did I let glasses talk me into letting her come so early?! I hadn't gotten much sleep the night before because of a nightmare I had. It’s been so long since I had one of them that when it started, I forced myself to stay awake the majority of the night. I got up and hit the intercom to tell Paul to buzz me out of my room.

“Paul?” no reply.

“Paul?!” I called again and again no answer.

“Paul can you hit the fuckin buzzer! Or do I have to wait for winter to get here first? Bloody fuckin hell!” I snapped, even shocking myself.

“Alright, alright calm down lad. When I buzz you come down and see me alright?”

When he buzzed the door I did what he asked and he informed me that I looked like shit.

“There are dark circles around your eyes and your hair looks as if it’s in a tangled mop. What were you doing last night lad?” Paul said. I looked at him confused, so my hair is the same. What was so bad about that?

“Couldn't get to sleep, and now my shadow will be here soon so...” I trailed off.

“Well get to the showers and then to the pharmacy’s office so you can get your meds since you’re up early.” Paul said eyeing me cautiously. I can tell he doesn't believe my lie one hundred percent, but I'm greatful he didn't call to have me sent to an early session with a group. Those didn't work when I first came here and they sure as shit wouldn't do anything but piss me off now.

I showered quickly, got dressed, and headed to the pharmacy office. When I got there, Ms. flirty nurse, whose name I learned last night was Lily, started making eyes at me.

“Hiya sexy, you alright?” She asked, looking at me up and down like she does every time she sees me.

“I’m not really in the mood today actually.” My response must have shocked her a bit. Usually I would flirt right back with her, but I really don’t feel good today. That dream had put me on edge. She went behind some shelves and came back with my medicine for the day.

“Hmm, Dr. Baker’s got three for you today. Here you go hun.” She handed me the medicine and a cup of water. I swallowed it all even though I was suspicious as to why I had to take so many pills so early. I opened my mouth to show her I did in fact swallow my medicine and didn't store it in my cheeks to try and get high, or use it for other reasons as patients here do sometimes and before I left she leaned over the counter and kissed the corner of my mouth before whispering to me to feel better.

*Reagan’s POV*
When I got to the hospital I headed back towards the residential quarters and saw Paul again. He greeted me warmly and warned me that Harry was not in the best of moods before swiping me in and buzzing me up to Harry’s floor. When I got off the elevator, I was instructed by one of the security guards to sit in the waiting area on the floor until Harry got back. I waited for five or ten minutes before security told me that he was back in his room. When I saw him, he was curled up on his bead with his back facing the door.

“Wake up H. I told you I would be here early for a reason.” Harry responded incoherently and I began to wonder if he was having a bipolar episode. I put my bag down and sat at the desk that I sat at yesterday when I noticed how pale Harry looked.

“Harry are you okay?” I asked standing from the desk and walking over towards his bed. He looked delicious even when he wasn’t feeling his best. He had on an olive green beanie, black Nike basketball shorts and footballer’s socks, and layered a white short-sleeve t-shirt over a white long sleeve Under Armor one. His active wear made me think about him sweaty from playing a sport instead of sweaty from being sick and I had to shake the butterflies that flew around in my stomach, not wanting a repeat of yesterday to happen when he responded.

“I’m fine. Just fuck off please ....personal bubble, you’re too close.” There were small sweat beads forming on his forehead as I went to place my hand there to see if he had a fever, he weakly reached up and slapped it away.

“I’m fine I said!” Harry snapped, this time as he sat up in his bed and knitted his eyebrows at me. He then quickly jumped off the bed grabbed his stomach and ran into a room that I thought to be a closet, closing the door behind him when I heard a horrible retching sound. I opened the door and walked into the room to see Harry bent over a toilet vomiting. I walked up behind him and began to rub his back, that always makes me feel a tad better when I'm being sick.

“Oh my God! Harry! You definitely aren’t fine. I should call a nurse.” Harry waved me away and finished throwing up. When he got up he flushed the toilet and went to the sink to rinse out his mouth, brush his teeth, and throw water on his face.

“It’s fine. I’m fine. All better. I just didn’t eat before or after I took my meds today. I knew that would happen.” Harry responded and flashed me a fake smile then knotted his brows again.

“You still look pale. Maybe we should go to the dining hall so you can eat then?” Harry agreed, too weak to put up a fight as we walked into the elevator.

“You really look like shit.” I said lying to him and to myself as I hit the first floor button. He simply nodded in agreement.

“So I've been told already.” No smart ass comment? He must really not feel well. As he stood in the corner of the elevator, he looked down at the ground and his breathing got heavier.
When we got to the dining hall, I made Harry sit down as I gathered some things for him to eat and I bumped into Peyton.

“Oh, Hi Reagan sorry about that.” Peyton bent over and picked up the orange I was holding for Harry. I could clearly see that he was nervous to talk to me by the shade of pink that his cheeks began to turn. I've intimidated guys before, but there was something about Peyton’s bashfulness that was kind of cute to me.

“Hey Peyton , no worries.” I smiled at him and took the orange. Our hands touched, but there were no butterflies or spark there like with Harry.

“Hey, um I was wondering would you be terribly busy tonight. I mean I was just telling Laurie how I would really enjoy getting to know you better and now I've just bumped into you...I mean if you’re not busy that is?” I smiled at him and was just about to answer when I saw Harry lurch forward at his table. He quickly stood up grabbing mouth to run to the restroom, but he didn’t make it.

“Oh shit, Harry!” I’m so worried about him. He’s so sick. A major part of me wants to take him back to his room and nurse him until he feels better, but the focused part of me reminds me that I can’t be bothered to think about him in that way. He is basically my patient. I turned back to look at Peyton to answer before going to Harry.

“I’ll be done here around eight. Give me until nine? See you later.” As I left I saw Peyton smile and wave back at me, how completely unexpected.
